Here is the menu for this week:

Monday

Mahi-Mahi with Pineapple Salsa (Recipe HERE), brown rice, and steamed broccoli (or other veggie)

I love Mahi Mahi!  I always knew it as Dolphin in Florida but that is a bit confusing to some…we are not eating Flipper.  It is a very nice white fish with a bit more fishy flavor than Tilapia or Sole.  If you are not a fan of that, this can easily be replaced with Tilapia or Sole or some other fish you can find easier in your area.

We will simply make brown rice and steam some broccoli or other veggie to serve with this.  Easy!

Tuesday

Greek Omelettes (recipe HERE)

We had one of these at a restaurant in Hawaii and loved it!  I never would have thought to put Feta and other greek ingredients in an omelette…not sure why but it never crossed my mind.  You must try it though…so good!

I think some fresh fruit will be a nice side for this.  We’ll just see what we have at the time.  I know we have a bunch of mango…maybe that will be the fruit of choice.

Wednesday

Mexi Bowls

This is just a variation on one of our favorite meals…tostadas.  Basically, we just use ground turkey to make taco meat (sometimes we skip the meat), and make a bowl with brown rice, meat, black beans, olives, fat free sour cream, home made guac (recipe HERE), and maybe some cheese.  With the exception of the guacamole, it is really quick and easy to make…and the guac is so worth it.

Thursday

Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables (recipe HERE)

This recipe is a new one that I have never tried.  It is from the book “Everyday Pasta” by Giada De Laurentiis.  It looks like a great vegetarian option.  As always, you need to use whole wheat pasta here.

Friday

Roasted Salmon, Fennel, Red Onion, and Yam (Recipe HERE)

This one is from a Real Simple cookbook (which has a ton of unhealthy food in it, by the way).  I was able to find this recipe that looks both good and healthy.  It recommends serving with rice but I decided to add yam to the roasted veggies instead.  So, when you roast the fennel and red onion, just add some yam to the mix.  Or, if you like, you can omit the yam and serve with brown rice as the recipe states.

Saturday

Grilled Steak with salad and corn on the cob (if available)

No real recipe here.  Just planning to grill up some steaks, make a nice green salad, and grill corn on the cob if there is any available at the store…if not, we will just steam another veggie or load up the salad with more stuff.

Lunch and Breakfast

My Breakfast every day will be vegan chocolate Shakeology made usually with coconut milk, flax seed, almond butter, water, and ice in a blender.

Lunches include leftovers from dinners, Peanut butter and honey on 100% whole wheat (often Dave’s Killer Bread), fruit and yogurt (plain yogurt), salads with homemade dressing, etc.
